The preeminent beach destination Myanmar, Ngapali's 1.5-mile crescent of golden sand on the Bay of Bengal is increasingly attracting savvy international travelers looking to avoid the more crowded shores of Southeast Asia. Situated in the Myanmar's western Rakhine State, Ngapali is conveniently served by Thandwe airport, making it easy to add to an itinerary of Burma's main cultural centers.


A handpicked selection of experiences endorsed by our experts. If you can’t see what you’re looking for, let us know, as our extensive network of local contacts can open many doors.


While we encourage relaxing to the fullest while in Ngapali, Remote Lands can also arrange various activities during your stay: Undertake a journey by boat along the coastline or to mangroves in a nearby river; go fishing for tuna, mackerel, or barracuda; watch for birds in the nearby forests; hike through woods, fields, and villages with your own private guide; bike through the surrounding countryside; golf at a nearby 9-hole course. Additionally, visitors can also go on a half-day tour of Ngapali to visit markets, handicraft shops, monasteries, and local villages.


Ngapali's beaches are a perfect complement to the wealth of cultural touring that Myanmar offers. Its soft white sands, warm tropical waters and ample palm tree shade make the perfect environment in which to reflect on your journey.
